The two-bedroom, two-bath just south of Park Slope, in the area dubiously called Greenwood Heights, is all on one level. It has a mix of old-school charm (beamed ceilings, "farmhouse sink," clawfoot tub), industrial chic (poured concrete floors), and that current omnipresent obsession with mid-century modern simplicity (sunken living room, much of the furnishings). There's also a two-car garage, with a retractable door that opens right into the living roomhence how that vintage-y bike rolled on in. Beyond that, the property also sprouts private outdoor spaces in the front and rear; the latter has a fountain and vegetable garden. The asking price? $2.25 million. Is this home better than old-fashioned Brooklyn townhouses, which list in droves? It is, at the very least, more rare.
